Buckhead Home Sells for 96.5% of Asking Price

Recently, Kyle Garrett, owner of Garrett Designs, contacted me about discussing the possible sale of her home off Old Ivy Road. She was concerned as most sellers are; about the present conditions of the market as well as the fact the she had recently purchased the home only three years ago.

Those changes led me to remark in a speech in the 1990s that metropolitan Atlanta was the fastest-growing human settlement in history regarding land consumption. This phenomenal growth has been in all four cardinal directions but particularly to the north, up I-75, Ga. 400 and I-85.
